Yes I know - don't faint - it is only Sunday and I'm doing a posting - I mean what on earth am I thinking - bet you thought my weeks only consisted of Fridays these days didn't you!
Scary scary stuff how quickly these weeks are flying by - I mean it - I'm sure last week it was January - where has the year flown to!
Anyway you'll have to put up with my Sunday evening ramblings you know what I'm like - little Miss War and Peace. I'm going to share a circle journal page with you, I've only partaken in two circle journals to date. The first of which finished last month and my first ever circle journal is still not home - I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that it actually makes it but it's difficult to tell whether it will or not, however, I'm remaining hopeful!
My second circle journal is also proving as stressful, we've had one person go AWOL and take two circle journals with them - we're rallying round but it's been a difficult one to date. This is the page I did for the person who went AWOL - we had initially intended on carrying on with the circle journal however given the two missing journals it's been returned to it's owner unfinished which is sad. This is my layout that I did, I loved doing the page using the silhouette of Jared Leto on the page - so thought I'd share it here as I don't think it will be seen again!
Then another page - don't faint - yes another 12 x 12, the photo was taken at YSP in the summer - the wooden sculptures are simply amazing and I loved the jaunty angles that my hubby took this photo at.
I enjoyed doing the stitching on the page as well as using the masks, I was unsure of the colour combination but it always amazes me how sometimes perseverance means that it just works out fine once it's done! A close up of the stitching - I love stitching templates they really can bring things together and mean that I get to use some of my hoard of embroidery threads up!
The weekend has been mighty strange - it's gone so quickly I can't quite believe we're at Sunday evening again, we've managed to do quite a lot though and I finally feel that I'm making progress on presents - just not very fast LOL!
Today has been a really Christmassy day - why you may ask - well hubby has cooked the Christmas cake (he's had the fruit soaking in rum all week!) and I've made what has become our traditional Christmas pudding - so all the spices have been permeating the air today - bliss!
So there you go - my weekend in the blink of an eye if you stop by don't forget to say hi - I love to know whose been around!
